Singer India has filed for an domain dispute (INDRP) over domain name Singer.co.in domain name with .IN Registry and rightly so as the domain name parked with ParkingCrew.net has many references to SINGER SEWING MACHINE:
Currently their official site for India is at: www.singerindia.net, they do not either own a .com or even singer.in because word SINGER being a generic one, cannot be claimed in a Domain Dispute, if a legitimate use is being made of a Domain Name or otherwise is not violating any rights of the Trademark Holder. The WHOIS for disputed domain is as follows:

The Domain seemed to be held by some Mr Pratik Naik of Novation In Limited since July 2005. But sadly the Domain name was never put to any use and the brand ADs appearing on the parked page only worsen the case for the Respondent !
First of their Trademarks was applied way back in 1942 and has been continuously renewed till date:
The INDRP has been allotted to Dr. Ashwinie Kumar Bansal, arbitrator from Chandigarh on 06 July 2017.
